The Last Affair by Margot Hunt - Blog Tour

I am thrilled to be part of the blog your for Margot Hunt's latest book, The Last Affair. Thank you to MIRA Books for the blog material I exchange for my honest review.

Book Summary
Gwen Landon—poster woman for perfect wife, mother, and suburban bliss—is found brutally bludgeoned to death behind her Floridian McMansion. Beautiful and beloved by her community, Gwen makes an unlikely victim. But just a scratch below the surface of her perfectly curated world reveals one far more sinister. When looking back over the six months leading up to her death, the question of, “who would do this?” quickly shifts to, “who wouldn’t?”

Commercially successful food blogger and mother of three, Nora Holliday never imagined she would have the nerve, let alone time, to get involved an affair. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she does whatever it takes to keep it all together. But when Nora runs into Gwen Landon's husband at a hotel in Orlando, his easy kindness and warmth proves too tempting to resist. As their affair spirals dangerously out of control, it seems things can’t get more complicated—until Gwen turns up dead.

The story grabs you from the very opening page when Gwen is found murdered in her backyard. As we read about the months leading up to her murder we find out she does not have as perfect of a life as everyone thinks. It is a story of two unhappy marriages. Each of the three couples, Nora and Josh, Gwen and her husband Josh, and Nora and her husband Carter, all have complex and different relationships. I loved Nora and Josh as a couple. I felt for their struggles with their troubled marriages and while I do not agree with affairs, the story focused more on the relationships.  I would recommend this book to anyone who loves reading about complex relations and surprise endings. The ending was one of my favorite parts of the book because it was so unexpected!
